Do we want to have a monthly OT that includes updates and release dates?
I can make the home tile be the central release for that month. And topical jokes in the side tiles. I think it could work. Sort of like the pick up threads.
I did not make the top 5 posters, for shame.
at this point I think a general thread is not needed anymore. If updates or news come out just make threads for it.
I just turned it on a few hours ago to buy and install Halo.
Hardly had time to enjoy it this month; exams, lots of dinner parties, "shopping" trip to London, work, etc.
AC4 has a harsh look to it with the sharpening filter and altered contrast. I've become accustomed to it on PS4; this is going to take some time getting used to.
Funny enough I need to play it with the USB connector into a wall outlet otherwise it uses more power than it chargesWas afraid of that. But it drains the battery too damn fast on my Lumia 920 and I want to complete it
Finally finished Ryse, the last 2 chapters were great. Well the 2nd to last was probably the best out of the entire game and the last 15-20 minutes of the last chapter was pretty amazing. The game didn't deserve the negativity around it, was it on the short side and was the combat somewhat the same, yes. But it has some decent depth especially on harder difficulties and it was a great ride with a pretty good story that I enjoyed quite a bit.
Maybe not worth 60 bucks, but I would take it at 40 easily. Such a great game. Oh, and the MP is pretty fun.
Can't decide between Forza, Ryse, or Max next...
It's nice to have options though!
Forza will give you the best value. With the amount of events to race in you could play for like 50 hours and then there's multiplayer. Ryse is like going to a 6 hour movie. It's good but not worth that kind of cash.
Is there anyway to get around the crappy Australian digital prices? I want digital as I hate swapping disks all the time but a game on disk locally can usually be found for around $79. Digital price from the Xbox store is $99.
I have no idea about how regions etc work with Xbox.
PM'd bish to see if he'd approve a monthly OT.
